I guess Jodi holds a grudge. Who knew? I've been tagged and have dutifully compiled my lists. Enjoy.

7 things I plan to do before I die:
1) Become a SCUBA instructor
2) Get out of bed when I wake up, instead of saying “10 more minutes.”

7 people I want to do this (Standard disclaimer that anyone not on the list who'd like to play is invited, and no one I've tagged should feel obligated. However, if you don't play it means you're a big poopy-pants and you need to go to a Scientology course to clear whatever high-fallutin' i-don't-meme issues you might be harboring)
